I'm a bit of an oldtimer. First competed in 2006, last in 2014. I''ve started practicing a bit lately (thanks corona...).
I remember back in the old days that there was an online network where you could make an account and have online competitions, timers, progress bars, profiles...
Everyone has the right to say he doesn't want event x or y to be held officially anymore. So that's your opinion.

I don't know if someone does this, but I have a new fisher cube and I'm trying to speedsolve it. My best average of 5 till now: 50.31 seconds.

a great competition for me after the dissapointing WC last week.
I had good results in some events but too bad I didn't get a single top 3 rating.
I was close though:
2x 6th (6x6 and 5x5)
1x 5th (2x2)
2x 4th (3x3 and 4x4)
Ha, we'll get it next time. :cool:
Wow, and I thought I was the only table tennis player here. (pretty naive, heh)
We should discus this this weekend in Dusseldorf.
The venue is used for the CHampions league matches of Borrussia Dusseldorf btw.
Michael Maze ftw.
For some strange reason, my stackmat only works with one hand.
When I pull my left hand off, it doesn't start counting. And when finished if I only put my right hand down time stops.
It's strange because my timer seems to know the left hand pad is broken and doesn't need it anymore to function.
